Canine Reiki Basics

I’m so proud to announce that I am now offering Reiki for your canine family members. I myself have seen significant bebe fits when using Reiki on my own fearful dog. But what is it and how does it work? Read on to learn more!

The word “Reiki” is derived from the Japanese terms “higher power” and “life force energy,” and was popularized in the early 20th century in Japan. It’s used in human circles for spiritual healing, stress relief, and self improvement.

This life force energy is channeled through the practitioner and transferred to the receiver generally via the hands. Although Reiki can be a hands on healing modality it can also be very hands off. Many practitioners never actually touch their clients but do place their hands several inches above their bodies. The energy channels just the same! Additionally many practitioners also offer long distance Reiki, meaning they don’t have to be present with you to do it. 

The intended benefits of Reiki are for physical healing, psychological treatment, and general wellness. It may relieve tension or alleviate fears, giving your dog a sense of peace.

On top of that, some note that pain relief and rapid recovery result from treatment, aiding the body’s natural healing process. Whether it’s a behavioral disorder, injury, or arthritis, your dog’s malady may be helped by Reiki.

Many report positive effects in general health and disposition for their dog with the use of Reiki. Others have stories that offer hope for reduction in chronic pain, even reversal and remission of severe medical issues. However, Reiki’s application and outcomes are not a replacement for routine veterinary care, or a reason to disregard needed medicine or medical procedures.

It offers a non-invasive assistance that serves as one line of loving defense for your dog, but don’t source all hope in one practice: even in healing sessions for ailing animals, practitioners explain that it may only ease an inevitable passing. Time heals all wounds: Reiki does not.

Lastly, not all dogs are accepting of the Reiki treatment. If your dog is scared, uncomfortable or tries to leave the session altogether, they are conveying that they do not want the treatment. If that is the case then your practitioner will end the session. Reiki can not be given to those who are unwilling.
